From the group that brought you last summer's hit "Hot Cheetos & Takis" comes another song on a subject hip-hop has heretofore seldom considered: school uniform swag.

The song, "Khaki Pants," which dropped earlier this month, is an ode to school uniform bottom wear, and it comes complete with its own accompanying dance. According to the video, the song, presented by Y.N.Rich Kids, is performed by the NSJ crew (although, as Grantland points out, it's unclear what the relationship between the two groups is).

"Walking through the school in my khaki pants, when they see how I be fresh, they do the khaki dance," raps one member the group.

"Yeah, we got 'Hot Cheetos & Taki' fans, but after this, you gon' wanna do the khaki dance," raps another member.

The video, which has more than 89,000 views on YouTube as of this writing, already has at least one high-profile fan. Chris Hayes, host of the MSNBC show "All In With Chris Hayes," tweeted a link to the song yesterday:

He also mentioned the clip on Wednesday's episode of his show.

Y.N. RichKids received media attention last summer with the release of their video "Hot Cheetos & Takis," which has over 6 million views on YouTube. The young group is a product of the North Community YMCA's Beats and Rhymes program in Minneapolis.

The program is "designed to provide challenging, positive youth and career development opportunities for low income, culturally-diverse youth," according to its website.

This post has been updated to include additional information about the performers.
